Greetings my loyal subjects, it is I, your [b]Great King of Evil[/b] and since this is the timeline where Link was easily defeated by me like the puny weakling that he is (also known as [b]The Most Logical Timeline[/b], also known as [b]The Awesomest Timeline[/b]), my reign of terror will continue as I host FanimeCon’s [i]Legend of Zelda[/i] cosplay gathering for my fourth consecutive year. As always, I look forward to seeing all your awesome costumes, whether you’re a veteran of this shindig or a brand new face.

I’m currently planning on holding the ‘14 gathering on Day 3 (Sunday) just like the last two years. I’m also planning to host a Nintendo/[i]Smash Bros.[/i] gathering in 2014, likely on Day 2 (Saturday), where I also hope to see plenty of [i]Zelda[/i] representation. So if you can’t make the main gathering, have another [i]Zelda[/i] cosplay you want to show off, or simply feel like wearing your favorite [i]Zelda[/i] costume to two gatherings, then be sure to drop by the Nintendo/[i]Smash Bros.[/i] gathering. The thread is here: [url]http://www.cosplay.com/showthread.php?t=323612[/url]

(And if there is enough interest, we might be able to hold a separate [i]Zelda[/i] gathering on Day 2 also. If that sounds cool, let me know!)

As for location, I’ll ask for the same spot we’ve used the last few years (corner tree area between the Marriott and the convention center) unless there’s a better suggestion out there. If anyone has any other suggestions on how to make this gathering even better, please share them here.

I'd actually suggest having both the Zelda and Nintendo gatherings on the same day. For those that have multiple (or non-Zelda) cosplays, having to block off chunks for 2 of the 4 days for the same Zelda cosplay might be asking a lot, especially if the person doesn;t have the option to change out (far hotel, commuter, etc). If you have the two gatherings the same day, just at spaced out times, people only need to wear their Zelda cosplays for one day, which frees up the other days for other cosplays. You'd probably get even better Zelda attendance at the Nintendo gathering if they were close in time or back to back.

That is an EXCELLENT idea, rj_sosongco. Seconded!

[QUOTE=rj_sosongco;4694937]I'd actually suggest having both the Zelda and Nintendo gatherings on the same day.[/QUOTE]

My thinking is that holding the Nintendo/[i]Smash Bros.[/i] gathering on a different day provides a second option for [i]Zelda[/i] cosplayers who might not be able to make the main gathering on Sunday. Ideally, Zelda cosplayers can fit at least one of the two gatherings into their busy schedules.

But that's a thought I hadn't considered: people who might want to attend both the Zelda and Smash Bros. gatherings without changing costumes. If having both gatherings on the same day appeals to more people, I'll definitely consider it.

July bump.

I would love to attend, but I can't find anything to register for next year. If it is on Memorial Day weekend I would love to come.

The registration page is not up yet, but I'm 99.9% sure Fanime will be held on Memorial weekend as it has been every year since 2004.

Good. Once the date on Memorial day weekend is confirmed. I intend to register for it. I plan on bringing an updated version of my Jedi Link costume I wore at AX and Comic Con this year.

The Triforce of Bump-age.

#11 TunaTetrazzini on 5 years ago

Should I be at Fanime instead of AX, I'll probably be Tetra.

#12 Gamedraco Cosplay on 5 years ago

October Bump. Thought I'd pull a fast one on my sworn enemy the Great King of Evil.

#13 Nemuren on 5 years ago

Seeing as character designs from A Link Between Worlds are spreading and cosplayers are buzzing, I figured it appropriate to add a new category above.

#14 Gamedraco Cosplay on 5 years ago

November bump: Link scores again against Ganon!:D

#15 Nemuren on 5 years ago

...this is the part where Ganondorf achieves his goals by letting Link do all the bumping work for him.
